Katera is a soulful singer-songwriter known for her sensual blend of modern R&B with acoustic pop, hip-hop and gospel. Featuring sultry, soothing vocals and smooth stacked harmonies, Katera’s neo-soul gospel lean and low-key brand of self-assurance draws comparison to artists like Erykah Badu, India.Arie and Brandy.
Hailing from Dixiana, a rural community on the fringe of Columbia, South Carolina, the small town singer’s gifts have led her to the big stage, supporting global acts like Corinne Bailey Rae. Katera grew up singing in her church choir and began songwriting and playing piano early on. As a child she’d record herself singing on cassette tapes – by the time she reached her teens, Katera was directing her school’s gospel choir, producing songs and and winning local talent shows.
Since the release of her debut single ‘In Love With The DJ’ in 2012, Katera has made her decade-later comeback with the long-awaited release of her magnetic, genre-blurring debut album, ‘Fear Doesn’t Live Here’, in 2022.
Evocative and assertive, blissed-out yet grounded, the nuanced simplicity of Katera’s music is gorgeously showcased in her anticipated album debut.
